    Oh Jesus, everyone was young once and made stupid decisions, doesn't mean they deserved to get killed for it. :shakehead:

    What a horrible and tragic accident, his family must be tore up. :frown:

    I'm sure they are and I hope they get some relief but where were they when this minor got drunk and shot a gun in their back yard? tom.

    And he didn't get killed for a stupid mistake. He died from a self inflicted wound.And his parents will take this to their graves.

    How was all that not a stupid mistake? Getting trashed and toying around with a gun is a dumb idea and a mistake. The kid did not deserve to die for it and the world is not a better or worse place because of it..

    >>> the single round he fired at a butane tank

    :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:

    Thankfully it was a .380 instead of something larger that might have penetrated the tank and ignited the butane.

    I don't know. My kids didn't have access to booze or guns. Both are alive and productive adults.tom.

    Good for them and good on you for knowing better, but all I'm saying is the whole thing is a tragic accident/mistake and should be looked at as so. Not like "world's better with out him".

    I like how no charges have been filed, yet the entire family is here illegally.

    I felt you implied it though with the "Gene" comment. No harsh feeling from here just so you know, just sounded a bit cold. :wavey:

    I did not mature until I was thirty five. I knocked ten years off my mother's life just worrying about me all the time.

    Not a bad kid , just overly adventurous.No fear whats so ever.
    The only thing that saved me was , I didn't drink and still don't ,
    I didn't shoot a gun till I was twenty five but , was taught correctly and pain receptors to know ,that friggin hurt !

    Drinking at that age ,that is tragic in it's self but to die , The old man should have question to answer to if he can ever sleep again.

    Don't know where you're getting ricochet from except the incorrect title of this thread.

    Article says he pointed the gun to his head and pulled the trigger.

    It was NOT a ricochet. Can that many of y'all not read? :dunno:

    From article:

    ".. but he “thought twice” about shooting it and instead pointed it at his head, Treviño said.

    “He fires one time and shoots himself in the head,” Treviño said."
